About Me


Now at the East 38th Street Branch, you can check out zines by local and BIPOC creators. You may be asking- what is a zine? A zine (short for magazine) is often a self-published or small run publication of a specific interest collection of stories, pictures, and comics. Zines provide an alternative point of view that may not be expressed by traditional media or publishers. Zines “embrace individual expression” and “can be thought of as a direct link to an individual’s opinion, personality, or interpretation of the world.” (Stoddart, R.; Kiser, T. "Zines and the Library" Library Resources & Technical Services vol. 48, no. 3, 2013, p. 191-198.)

Established in 2021, the East 38th Street Zine Collection was created to expand the number of available reading materials for library patrons who are seeking perspectives closer to their own. This collection supports the Library’s mission to provide access to additional material formats written by and for BIPOC through our commitment to racial equity and inclusion. The collection currently contains over 175 zines available for checkout.

One of our local zine-making partners, Face A Face Collective, shared this coloring sheet made from the cover of their art & literature zine. Face A Face Collective focuses on elevating black, brown and marginalized voices in Indianapolis.
